SOCIALIST WORKER sellers are reporting a good response from civil service workers who are facing a government attack.
Sadie from Leeds says, “We did our first Socialist Worker sale last week at Eastgate job centre, following the strike. We sold five papers and we met a PCS union member who had joined Respect on the picket line.
“He was really eager to get the new Socialist Worker and read the reports of the strike. He had given out a load of Respect leaflets. We have Oliur Rahman speaking at a public meeting, and we are going to draw up a list of PCS workplaces we can leaflet.”
Backing people who face racism
AFTER THE exposure of the torture of British detainees in Guantanamo Bay last week, Socialist Worker sellers in Sheffield were campaigning outside mosques for the camp to be closed down.
Alan says, “We sold Socialist Worker at two mosques on Friday of last week and got a great response.
“We sold 19 copies of the paper at Industry Road mosque and 16 papers at Wolseley Road mosque.”
Happy to hear the good news
Matt from south London says that there was respect for Socialist Worker at the Stop Police Terror conference last weekend.
Matt says, “We sold 27 papers and collected lots of signatures against the Guantanamo Bay torture camp.
“People were very happy to hear about Oliur Rahman’s victory. Many activists already had the paper and were glad to see us supporting the conference.”
